Borgarfjordur, Hraunfossar Waterfall & Glacier Ice Cave | Super Jeep winter Tour

On this day tour you get to discover all the best of what Iceland has to offer. Our first destination is the stunning Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland’s first parliament, Alþingi, was founded in the year 930 AD. Two continental plates split on this location. Know a bit more about the Thingvellir National Park:

Thingvellir National Park

Thingvellir National Park is a part of the Golden Circle route. It is situated in southern Iceland and lies between Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. It is considered as a beautiful site among other Golden Circle routes. Majority of tourists prefer to visit this place and it has now become a tourist destination place. You would see many things in Thingvellir National Park. Earlier people from all over the country came here to sell their goods and services. We will find many kinds of species such as large trout and arctic chars. Most people come here during the months of June and July for fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. Hraunfossar waterfall and Thingvellir National Park are the two most popular places where tourists love to go.

There are about 172 species of higher plants found in this national park. Because of its good weather, Thingvellir is known as weather paradise of Iceland. During summer, the days get warmer and the nights get colder. But during winter, roads are filled with snow due to which people are advised not to drive on roads. Not only this, if you have planned to visit this place, then you will also admire beautiful waterfalls such as Oxararfoss and Hraunfossar waterfall.

We then challenge the 4×4 super jeep and drive on the mountain track in the desert valley of Kaldidalur, we will stop at the Glacier Langjökull and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from the glacier. Read some interesting things about:

Glacier Langjökull

It is the second-largest glacier in Iceland. Reykjavik, the capital city, Glacier Langjökull is the nearest extensive glacier. The most popular route to take in Iceland is the Golden circle. The jeep tour will take you to the places that are less visited by the tourist and are extremely beautiful. In Iceland driving off-road is strictly prohibited. You can visit this glacier at any time of the year plus can visit Hraunfossar waterfall which is very near to the glacier. A modified car or minibuses will help you to the glacier. You can also visit some other beautiful attraction in the Golden circle such as hot springs, lava fields and waterfalls (Hraunfossar and Barnafossar). You should bring warm clothes, hiking shoes and can bring lunch too. You also need walking boots or waterproof shoes which they provide. Although it’s interesting. A road trip around Iceland should be on everyone’s travel list. Walk around the glacier, climb up and see the different layers of the glacier would give you the best feeling one could ever have.

Cave Víðgelmir

You have the option to pay extra to visit the ice tunnel in Langjökull glacier. If not, we also have the option of visiting Cave Víðgelmir “The Cave”, which is the largest of Icelandic lava tube caves, by volume. It has amazing colors and lava formations that are just waiting to be discovered in the depths of the earth. The gear is provided by the caving guide, and you would spend about 1 hour exploring the cave. Before we move towards the Hraunfossar waterfall, we will visit the lave cave.

The lava cave and Ice cave is a dynamic duo. Víðgelmir is Iceland’s largest lava tube cave. You have to see both the glacier ice cave and lave cave if you go to Iceland. First, you will get to the glacier ice cave site. The warm clothing and boots were provided. Don’t forget to wear waterproof clothes and protect your camera from melting water in the ice cave. Then bused to the lava cave. You will see unusual lava formations in Víðgelmir. In the highlands of Iceland Ice cave is a man-made glacier. The formations and movements of glaciers are constantly changing. The temperature inside the glacier is around zero degrees Celsius. This tour does not have a scheduled lunchtime so either take your lunch packed or order your package from us. No one should visit Iceland without exploring its amazing ice caves, lava tubes, and mighty glaciers.

Extras: Ice Tunnel – or – The Cave (Lava Cave Víðgelmir)

Next we drive through Húsafell and stop to see the wonderful Hraunfossar waterfall and Barnafoss waterfall, fed from beneath an ancient lava flow. Finally we will feel the warm steam from the hot springs of Deildartunguhver. On our way back you will have spectacular views driving through the Fjord of Hvalfjörður.

Cascades of Hraunfossar and Barnafossar- They both are neighbouring waterfalls. These waterfalls are located in the Golden circle route. They are not far from the city and the natural beauty of these falls makes the golden circle more attractive. Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls are located in Borgarfjordur in western Iceland in the capital city of Reykjavík.

Hraunfossar waterfall

Hraunfossar waterfall, basically mean lava waterfalls. This waterfall is exceptionally delightful to watch. There are downstream series of the waterfalls which flows under the lava from a distance of about 900 meters. The last meters give more charm to the waterfall as they are visible. It is one of the best places for chilling, and for photography. It is a treasure to watch.

Barnafossar waterfalls

Barnafoss waterfall also called children’s fall. Barnafossar waterfall is near the Hraunfossar waterfall, another dramatic waterfall. They are located to each other with a few kilometres from Reykholt. Under the national stone bridge, Barnafossar is a mesmerizing light blue waterfall. The scenery around the waterfall is just breathtaking, as the lava flows out from the narrow path. There is a short walk from the car parking to the waterfall and around 300 meters hike to the Hraunfossar waterfall from Barnafossar. It is also an ideal location for photo sessions. These waterfalls are considered as picturesque waterfalls in Iceland and obviously a must-visit if in the country.

REVIEW: “The ONLY way to see Iceland”

I cannot say enough good things about Discover Iceland. The office was very responsive and informative while booking tours and the guides were all extremely nice, professional, and fearless when it came to the snow-covered roads in blizzard-like conditions. We had the fearless Orri and his amazing “super-jeep” Joy for two tours (Golden Circle with snowmobiles and Southern Coast) … Continue reading…
